Are you weeping inside right now because it’s almost that time of year to hit the books and fill your phones with pictures of your teacher’s power point slides? Do you feel sad now because those months of diving, tanning, and summer beach fun are almost over? You’re just not ready for school, right?
Well, think again because we believe getting back to the classroom is exactly what you need! We all enjoy summer but we always start to miss those small things school has to offer. Here are five reasons you are actually ready to get back to school.
1. You Miss Being There
Whether we like it or not, school has a great influence on our personalities. Being in school is like being in a miniature society. There are your friends, and friends’ friends. Oh, and also the people you and your friends make fun of together.
2. You’re Excited to See Your Teachers
I get this might not be similar for everyone but come on. Most of us at least have one teacher we’re down with. Even those we don’t quite get along with, we end up realizing their worth later on in our lives.
While school is synonymous with prison, most of the time, you still get the freedom to choose to be who you are without real life limiting you. The only responsibilities you have are getting schoolwork done, and studying for your exams, and in reality, we only complete those tasks one night before they’re due, and procrastinate all throughout the year (which is so much fun, if you ask me!)
4. The Pranks
Whether you execute them or you’re just part of the audience, pranks very easily make school much more tolerable, and frankly we just get creative along the years. You know, practice makes perfect. Sure detention sucks, but it’s definitely worth it.
5. Your Friends
The mere and sole reason to why you get up in the morning, feeling somewhat excited to go to school, is your friends. All throughout school years, we make friendships that truly last a lifetime. Especially in middle school, if someone is able to tolerate you in the age of your most awkwardness and confusion, then they’re the real MVPs!
School is just one of those things that you love to hate. Sure, it’s a drag, it’s annoying, it’s exhausting, and it’s most definitely stressful. However, school helps you come of age and begins shaping who the person you become. Plus, in reality, there’s a teeny tiny bit of you that absolutely adores school, and wouldn’t have it any other way – well, maybe we could do without all the schoolwork and exams.
